Such programs are often exploited by cyber criminals for their malicious purposes. What is more, they often find their way onto systems without even being noticed. This is done with the use of freeware installers. If you have recently downloaded some free program from a third-party website, then it has most likely been bundled with the adware. There are a few things you can do in order to prevent any adware from sneaking onto your computer:
- Be sure to download software only from legitimate sources.
